Chilled

The rain hangs heavy in the air here in New England. A typical March day chilled to the bone. Mist fills spaces between treetops and hills. While in Arizona snow fell today Ending a long absence of moisture. Carol called to tell me of the owl sitting in the snow on a cactus. I could hear the smile in her voice Everyone is happy in Arizona today. Moisture soaks the air Awaiting desert blooms of Spring. In New England we rest on the edge between winter and spring. Moisture everywhere Chilled to the bone.
